Jog or race your way across town for this fun adoption weekend! Celebrate Bay to Breakers weekend at the San Francisco SPCA’s Bay to BARKers event, May 18 – 20!

This year is the SF SPCA’s 150th anniversary, so connecting the springtime cocktail party and adoptathon theme with Bay to Breakers, a beloved San Francisco tradition, was a natural fit. Adult animals (6+ months) will be FREE to adopt Saturday and Sunday, May 19 – 20, at SF SPCA locations in the Mission and Pacific Heights.

“This year is milestone anniversary for the SF SPCA, and we’re inviting everyone to get involved,” said Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, SF SPCA President. “We want to celebrate the San Francisco community and everything that we’ve been able to accomplish together in the last 150 years.

Discover why senior dogs rule when you call in love with Cappy!

There is something so cuddly about American Eskimo dogs. Maybe they remind me of my childhood Samoyed? I was drawn to this handsome quiet guy who loves to sidle over for little snuggles.

When we visited together over a couple weeks, Cappy was always gentle and incredibly patient with his fellow Muttville roomies. He is such a zen master that he can fall asleep sitting up, with the busy city streets outside his window.

In his last home Cappy received lots of lap time and a few too many meals. He would love to go to a home that can help him shed some of his extra weight just in time for summer!


This sweet boy loves to get brushed, and will fall asleep to the smooth soft rhythm. It not only feels good for him and is good for his coat, but my own blood pressure dropped. I brushed him with a small rake for two minutes when this happened...


He’s fantastic on leash and always ready for a stroll in the sunshine. We think Cappy will make a great addition to any mellow home.

Cappy is around 13 years young, currently weighing around 20 lbs.

Fall in love with him at Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco!   Learn more:  https://muttville.org/mutt/cappy-2825

Celebrating 150 Years San Francisco SPCA Honored on April 18th!!

The SF SPCA’s 150th anniversary is Wednesday, April 18! In honor, San Francisco Mayor Mark Farrell has proclaimed April 18, 2018 ‘SF SPCA Day’ in San Francisco.

April 16, 2018 – The San Francisco SPCA is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year and it is inviting the entire community to get involved. Thanks to San Francisco’s unwavering support, the lives of millions of animals have been changed for the better since the organization was founded in 1868. From introducing the first horse ambulance in 1884 to founding the No-Kill movement in 1994, San Francisco has always been at the forefront of animal welfare. To celebrate this special year, the SF SPCA has planned a full calendar of special events, from cocktail parties to historical exhibits to cat movie nights.

The SF SPCA was founded on April 18, 1868, when San Francisco banker James Sloan Hutchinson caught sight of two men dragging a terrified hog along the rough cobblestone street. Appalled, Hutchinson stepped in to stop the cruelty and rescued the hog. The incident crystallized Hutchinson's concern over widespread animal abuse, and he soon rallied 15 like-minded citizens to found the SF SPCA.


APRIL 18th

In honor of the 150th anniversary, San Francisco Mayor Mark Farrell has proclaimed April 18, 2018, as SF SPCA Day in San Francisco! The proclamation will be announced during a special 150th Anniversary Gala Celebration at City Hall on April 18.

“The SF SPCA’s slogan for its anniversary celebrations is ‘the animal organization for people,’ which speaks to our 150-year connection with the community of San Francisco,” explained Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, SF SPCA President. “Not only are we celebrating 150 years of advocating for animals, but we’re also celebrating the bond between people and the animals in their lives.”

Discover why senior dogs rule when you fall in love with Ela!

Ela is just the sweetest sugar face and older dog you’ll ever meet. She’s the prettiest blend of chihuahua and terrier. This little lover girl would be the perfect roommate and walking companion. She loves long conversations and listening to music.

Look at her cute little expression here...what a adorable snuggle bug, and secret keeper.


How cute is this little senior? Ela originally comes to us from the San Francisco county animal shelter.

Sadly, her owners had to surrender her due to issues with their landlord. Despite losing her home, Ela is adjusting very well and has already made herself comfortable here at Muttville.


She enjoys hanging out with the other dogs, meeting new people, and going for walks. She’s a quiet and gentle girl who will fit right in to your family!

Ela is 8 years young and weighs 15 pounds.

Meet her at Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco and you’ll understand why senior dogs rule!
